The President said, in particular, in his message:
“Over the decades of independent development, India has achieved impressive success in the economy, society, science and technology, and other fields. Your country plays an important constructive part in resolving current issues on the regional and international agendas.
Our privileged strategic partnership with India remains an unchanging foreign policy priority for Russia. I want to reaffirm our desire to continue strengthening mutually advantageous bilateral cooperation in various areas. In this context, we place great importance on the events that will celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between our two countries.”
